Last few tickets for Publishing Day – Saturday 18th May.

by Cathy Hayward -

This coming Saturday 18th May, we're hosting our annual Publishing Day,  a day full of workshops and Q&As with the goal of helping you get published. 

We'll be covering: ⠀
📚 Routes into publication
📚 Views from agents, publishers and published authors ⠀
📚 Writing an eye-catching synopsis
📚 Covering letters ⠀
📚What happens after you've signed the contract 

Our publishing day – which is run online but with plenty of breaks – is the best way to network and understand the publishing process a little bit better. It is just another great way that the Creative Writing Programme aims to help you make the most of your writing talents and skills.

The day runs from 10am to 4pm and is aimed at primarily at students in the second year of the programme or on the Advanced Writers Workshops, but first year students are welcome too.  It’s led by experienced Creative Writing Programme tutors and published authors – as well as two CWP alumni – so you can hear first-hand from those who’ve been through the process.
